Commuters and motorists, who frequent the Donkey City, Stabroek Market Square, can traverse the road with ease now that it has been resurfaced, the Ministry of Works said yesterday.

The Ministry of Public Works’ Force Account Unit (FAU) completed overlaying a large section of the Square on Friday with asphalt concrete, the Ministry said in a statement.

Works Minister, Robeson Benn, was approached by the City Engineer’s Department to execute the works, the statement added.

Prior to the rehabilitation, the road surface was filled with potholes – making movement difficult for vehicular traffic and commuters.

The project, which lasted three days, costs the Ministry approximately $4.5M.

Meanwhile, the statement said that the FAU will today begin resurfacing a section of the main access road that leads to the University of Guyana.
